At the heart of any business relationship lies an agreement between two or more parties. A properly implemented agreement can help avoid liability and costly litigation. A properly implemented agreement can enhance the way in which parties collaborate to their mutual benefit. It may be helpful as well, for an attorney to initially review certain agreements in-order-to raise concerns, identify risks, expose gaps in understanding and highlight cautions that might otherwise lead to unwanted results.
